Sad news, and sadder still that he fell out with co star James Bolam...after revealing to a newspaper in 1976 that Bolam's wife was pregnant.
Bolam, who was fastidiously private, was allegedly furious with Rodney, and the pair never spoke again.
Bolam denies that the pair fell out, but I think, reading between the lines, it's pretty obvious they did.
Bewes claimed that Bolam prevented the BBC from showing repeats of The Likely Lads, refused to appear on This Is Your Life when Bewes was the guest
star, and failed to get in touch to offer condolences when Bewes' wife died.
One of Bolam's personal quotes sums him up well: "I'm having some new track rods fitted on my car. I don't want to know anything about the man who's
doing it. Why should he want to know about me?"
Erm, because you are the famous actor, James Bolam, who's done loads of stuff on telly?
